I had mine go off a few times on vacation this year while I had it parked at the in laws, just plugged in and not staying in it. What I don't understand is right in the instruction manual it states not to install it with in 12" of a door and here it is mounted right in the entry way?

My CO detector flashes green about every 20 seconds or so.

My CO flashes every 10 to 15 seconds. Of course Rockwood mounted it right above the bed on the ceiling.

I have a 2012 Solera and the light is steady green. Don't know what blink indicates?

Good luck!

Could a FR rep chime in on this. Seems there are quite a few variables coming into play on the CO detector as l read their replies.

Chime I will...
"do not install within 12" of a door" technically its about 13" from the door give or take.

I can't speak for every division, but our owners manual (that was in the paperwork packet in the freezer, not sure where the dealer moves it to) says...

"When the unit is first powered up, the CO sensor requires a ten (10) minute initial warm-up period to clean the sensor element and achieve stabilization. The GREEN LED indicator will flash on and off during the 10 minute warm-up period. This unit cannot go into a CO alarm during the warm-up period. To test your unit during the warm-up period, press the test button. See Test Procedure in this manual. After the warm-up period, the GREEN power ON indicator should glow continuously If the ON indicator light does not light, see the section, Trouble-Shooting Guide, in this manual for further information. Do not attempt to fix it yourself."

We use Series 35. I could not find the digital version of the 35, but I did find 70 series and it is attached for you viewing (or sedative) pleasure.

Thanks to all. That Indeed sums it up. It was flashing, and yes, it was in the first 10 minutes. Just worried me a bit, because I tested it, and the alarm went off (like it should). Guess I'm just a worry wart! Thanks y'all!!
